Number of Servings: 4


    4 medium-sized zucchini squash, washed, dried, and trimmed at both ends
    4 tbsp fresh-squeezed lemon juice
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Herbs of your choice


Using the julienne blade of a mandoline, slice zucchini lengthwise into long, thin strands; separate the strands. NOTE: If you don't have a mandoline you can either use a vegetable peeler or a knife.

Transfer zucchini strands to a colander set over a mixing bowl. Toss the zucchini strands with salt; let stand 15 minutes at room temperature. Gently squeeze zucchini to extract excess water. Transfer drained zucchini strands to a bowl and toss with lemon juice, salt, and pepper.

To serve, twirl small amounts of zucchini strands with a long-tined fork and slip off onto individual serving plates. Garnish with herbs of your choice or use as a base for seafood of your choice.
